A thirteen hour day. John Stewart rather than the evening news as I shake off the tie and suit jacket. What to do? Have a beer from Whitehorse, of course. Wouldn't you? Don't you?? This beer from the Yukon Brewing Company came my way through one of the beer fans I have been cultivating locally who had a relative in the far off Yukon Territory. Like Australia, we still have Territories in Canada. All very days of Empire, I know.
The beer pours black with a mahogany rim under a mocha head that resolves to light foam an rim. A great aroma with espresso, dark chocolate. In the mouth there is more of the same with a great blend of mint and twig hops cutting through the rich cream yeast, the roasted and blacked malts and the silky smoothness of oats. The brewery says it was made in concert with a local coffee roaster which I can believe. So, I like it. BAers say "yes, indeed-a-lee-do" - Yukoners would never say that but BAers would.
